Happy New Year!

Last year I've experienced some big changes. I downsized my home and moved into a smaller space which resulted in an excess of stuff that I need to let go. To help me in my ongoing effort to simplify, I subscribe to several online organizing newsletters. Today, I'm reading a newsletter written by Marcia Garcia in which she has an article entitled, Your Simple, Organized and Carefree Life. In Marcia's article she asks, "What would it be like if your life was simple, organized, and carefree?" That's where I want to be.

Are you planning on setting resolutions for the new year? I think I've given up on setting resolutions. Instead, I'm moving toward focus areas (which are resolutions without specific goals). Here are mine for 2009 (and forward):

  • Reach my ideal weight and stay there.

  • Be more active and maintain it.

  • Eat more healthy foods and drinks.

  • Be happy.

  • Love much, laugh often, and live more.

Here are some for my household:

  • Happy & Loving
  • Supportive
  • Orderly & Tidy
  • Live simply

What are yours?
